The Capital District encompasses four of the most beautiful counties in upstate New York; Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer and Saratoga, respectively. Other counties could be included in this region, however these particular ones are known for their historic architecture (some farmhouses date from 1728), towns, churches, parks and festivals. It is also a popular region for tourists to come and see the Fall colors in the trees as well as the birthplace of the beloved American potato chip. The primary towns in the Capital District are Troy, Albany and Schenectady, yet there are plenty of others like Gloversville, Saratoga Springs and Schoharie that merit a visit in their own right.
